  1. We just had popiah at my parent’s place 2 weeks ago. I could have gorged on 5 in a sitting but my hubby only had 2… I didn’t feel right having more than him. :-( Next time, I’m stuffing myself silly with popiahs.

  2. Hi, In Ipoh the most famous Popiah sold by a man in old cinema of Old Town– not the shop’s name !! Now his daughter took over but she made it into King size that frighten me off !! He added in deep fried 虾皮 which is tiny shrimps with mostly shell as it has a very distinguish aroma and the fried shallot also a must for popiah. Lily Ng teaches to make the popiah skin too .http://lilyng2000.blogspot.com/

  3. Oh yes, if you like to eat the deep fried popiah, please don’t wrap in lots of filling !! Only 2-3 spoons of filling ( as fat as a hot dog sausage ) and try to roll and roll and seal off the edge with some flour mixed with some water. If too fat it will not crispy !! It will look like wet sea cucumber instead of crispy popiah !! The crispiness comes from the skin, so the more skin, the more crispy !!

  4. Looks great Bee – we are brining a team up to Penang from the Asian Food Centre at Taylors University to to field research and go IN DEPTH, I may actually to my Master’s Dissertation on the evolution of the spring roll!!! NO JOKE.

  5. Just had to tell you I made these last night and they were delicious. My husband loved them. I am so making these on a more regular basis. This is the first recipe I have made from this blog and it was awesome. Thanks.

  6. Hi, I love popiah so much but couldn’t find mangkuang here in my place. Do you know any root vege can sub with mangkuang ? Thank you
